Here's the layer below, inspired by The Sketchbook Challenge January theme of doodling:
Doodling in my sketchbook
I did the doodle drawing, straight to ink and watercolored it. Then I traced some images ink, on to vellum, from other pages in my sketchbook, that inspired the doodles. Then I attached the vellum to the page and colored some of the images with color pencil. I'll definitely do more of these! 
Don't forget to leave a comment on my January 1st post for a great giveaway! I'll announce the winner on January 12th.

  7. Jane... hope that's in the new March 29 class LOL! Question... what ink pen did you use? I tried the Pitt pens on vellum and they smeared! I was surprised to say the least.... Cheers, Sarah

  9. Jane this is beautiful. I love the contrast between the stong back ground and the softer velum. I could try this sometime.

  10. This is really beautiful. This is as if one is viewing nature on a misty morning through a glass pane on which one has doodled!

    A very new and creative idea
